Bankruptcy and restructuring

Our practice provides comprehensive legal advisory on restructuring and bankruptcy procedures, incl. the so-called “pre-packaged insolvency”, which makes it possible to freely transfer the bankrupt enterprise to an investor. We represent debtors and creditors alike. The scope of our services also includes out-of-court restructuring. Moreover, we represent clients in court disputes concerning liability of board members for debts/obligations of an insolvent company, procedures related to bans on engaging in business activity or holding specific positions, proceedings involving criminal liability for failure to submit a bankruptcy petition, as well as other procedures arising from the bankruptcy and restructuring law.


Scope of legal consulting

  • all aspects of bankruptcy and restructuring law (incl. representation in litigation);
  • identification of insolvency criteria and submission of a bankruptcy petition within the applicable deadline;
  • selection of the best restructuring procedure type;

  • evaluation of the efficiency of interim reliefs in restructuring and bankruptcy procedures;
  • debt adjustment processes for sole proprietors after a bankruptcy procedure, as well as processes related to personal bankruptcy;
  • negotiations with creditors;
  • disputes and criminal proceedings related to bankruptcy and restructuring law.
